- This song is the theme from the movie UHF Starring "Weird Al" Yankovic.
- This is one of the many "Weird Al" songs where the theme is Television.
- “Weird Al” and his band parody in the music video in order: Guns n’ Roses, George Michael - "Faith", Robert Palmer - "Addicted to Love", Prince, Talking Heads - "Once in a Lifetime", Peter Gabriel - "Sledgehammer", ZZ Top, Billy Idol - "White Wedding", The Beatles, INXS and Randy Newman - "I Love L.A.".
- At some point in the music video, “Weird Al” parodies Bob Dylan. He does the same thing in the music video for Bob.
- The music video for this song is noted as “Weird Al”’s most ambitious music video to date.
- The only difference between this and the single version is that this has an extended guitar solo and an extended opening.
- Al saying they "control the horizontal" and "the vertical, too" is a reference to the 1963 television show The Outer Limits.
